Green Giant® Vegetables Help Us Manage Our Weight + Giveaway

Review and Giveaway are sponsored by MyBlogSpark and Green Giant.

Hubby and I have been watching our weight and trying to eat healthy for the past year. We are huge vegetable eaters and one of our favorite brands happens to be Green Giant. Today, I wanted to share some exciting news with all of you from Green Giant!

No longer do you need to sustain a life of less. We know that feeling unsatisfied drives you to cheat on your diet, and cheating makes you feel guilty!

Instead with Green Giant®, you can eat lots more vegetables and feel good about the GIANT difference it makes in managing your weight. Because for the same amount of calories, Green Giant® gives you more.

• More flavor: from steamed, crunchy, fresh veggies that are seasoned with delicious low fat sauces and spices.

• More portion size: A Size that is actually bigger than you think.

• 27 variety's under 100 calories.

We personally use Green Giant vegetables every day and sometimes twice a day. We love their corn, peas, lima beans, green beans, brussel sprouts, cauliflower and creamed spinach. They always taste delicious and are easy to prepare. For those of you who lead very busy lives, you can prepare your Green Giant veggies in the microwave to save time or cook them on the range top. Whatever you prefer!

Green Giant makes so many different variety of tasty vegetables that you never get bored eating them. We enjoy them as a side with lunch or dinner and from time to time...even as a quick & health snack that is fulfilling. Hubby loves to take the frozen boxes of Green Giant veggies in his work lunch and he heats them up in the break room microwave to enjoy. 
Green Giant helps us manage our weight and to stay on track with our healthy diets. There are 27 different varieties of Green Giant vegetables under 100 calories. We love how easy they are to prepare, that they are healthy for our family and that we never get bored with them because there are so many different ones readily available at our grocery store. Often times our stores will run them on sale every few weeks and that is when I like to really stock up on them.

I received several Green Giant coupons and headed to our local store. I picked up a box of the Sweet Peas, a box of the Nibblets Corn & Butter Sauce and a box of the Brussel Sprouts. Over the next few evenings we made one in our microwave and served it as a side dish with our dinner. I also received a infuser water bottle and made myself some homemade strawberry infused lemonade. It was super delicious and I love sipping on real fruit juice to get my extra serving of fruits every day.

We love the Green Giant vegetables and we keep our freezer pretty stocked up with them. So far we haven't found a variety that we didn't like and even though they have 27 different varieties under 100 calories, we are hoping that they continue to add even more!
Giveaway: One lucky winner is going to win  a Green Giant Prize Pack! Your prize pack will include a gym bag, 4 VIP coupons to pick up 4 packages of Green Giant Vegetables, a Water Bottle with infuser, $10 Target gift card and a health fitness journal. (sorry, forgot to take a photo of the gym bag)
